Outside the locker room without the sandwiches and beer… plenty of glass shards, though, if you feel like it.
I love the texture of the rust through the decaying yellow paint.
Offices above the labs. Note all the air handling equipment. I love the utilitarian design.
Because painted signs would not hold up in this spot–in between four ovens that were literally hot enough to melt steel inside. Solution: Cut the pipe labels into the sheet metal. Seems to have worked.
That floor isn’t dirt–it’s old rotting grain that’s formed into a sort of moldy mud.
This dock goes between loading bays (see glass brick walls) and the railroad.
Looking out at the town water tower (which I love) from the sugar mill (which I also love).
It is unclear when the ‘Superior Warehouse Company’ sign was put up, but it was likely around 1916-1917, when maps indicate it served as a dry goods warehouse, operated by Twohy-Eimon Mercantile Company. The Sivertson sign was likely added in the mid-1980s. In this image I tried to preserve the colors the bricks turn at sunset.
